The actor acknowledged the unconventional nature of Full Circle. “I think back [it] It was insane.

In response to the criticism and media scrutiny surrounding Full Circle, Keegan acknowledged that he had made a potential mistake in seeking public attention. “They came in and I think at that time I probably should have gotten a little more media training. And I just thought, 'Oh, everything is great, this is all these wild things happening, holy shit. ’” he recalled.
Mr. Keegan wondered if the organization's name had unintentionally created a misunderstanding about its purpose. “Maybe I should have thought of a different name. I thought 'Full Circle' was a pretty good song, you know what happens, happens,” he said. “But again, it wasn't something that had a very specific purpose at the time. It kind of evolved from a group of people.”
